Donation Days

We are very grateful for supporters who want to help by bringing us donations. We have a list of items we are in need of below along with details of where and when donations can be dropped off with us.

We are unfortunately unable to accept items not on the list below as we are very limited on storage space and must keep this valuable space for items we are in need of. We will ensure this list is kept updated.

If you’d like to make a donation from our Amazon Wishlist, you can find it here.

Our address for cheque and postal donations is: Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter, Benton North Farm, Benton Lane, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE12 8EH.

Our donation days for each shelter are as follows:

Rehoming Centre, Benton North Farm, Benton Lane, Newcastle, NE12 8EH – DAILY between 11am and 4pm.

Arrivals Centre, Claremont Road, Newcastle, NE2 4NL – DAILY between 11am and 4pm.

Accepted Donations

We would like to express our gratitude for your kindness and stress that we do not want to appear ungrateful with regards to donations we cannot accept. We are very stretched for storage space and items we do not need have to be discarded which means these items aren’t used, which we do not want. This also means we have to pay to discard items we aren’t able to store which incurs a large cost for the shelter at a time when funds are tight, and costs are rising.

We cannot currently accept any items not on our accepted donations list which includes:

Pillow cases
Opened food/treats

Charity Shop Donation Days

We have two charity shops which accept donations of items to be sold in the shops.

Please note: our charity shops are unable to take in any items for animals, these must be brought to one of our shelters.

Four Lane Ends charity shop accepts donations on Mondays and Thursdays.

Wallsend charity shop accepts donations daily.

For enquires about our donation days or any items that aren’t on these lists, please email us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support!
